Fabulous Folk album
on 17 October 2013
Full English is possibly one of the best folk albums to be released for years.
This is because the song choice is just great. Together they form a great programme representation of British Folk song. The song choices are some of the most familiar you could wish for in one package. They are possibly predictable choices but that doesn't matter since that is the strength of the compilation of songs. Familiar songs such as Dashing away with the smoothing iron, John Barleycorn, John Peel, The oak and the ash, Scarborough Fair and the Raggle taggle gypsy are all performed brilliantly with interesting traditional style. There are a number of musicians on the recording and there is a wide variety of instruments.
First class recording and easily recommended.
